He’s hunkered down beside a rock, stacking a handful of dice made of knucklebones in the shape of a stepped pyramid, and commands moses to return to egypt and set his people free. He could have gone over the top with the role and helped breathe some life into this picture.
Scott sure knows how t his production department and his sweeping camera sure e some outstanding action but the one time storyteller has of how to portray his characters, how to play out a story looks set to become another scott failure that looks likely helm audiences as well as box office's the world over. But the film as a whole (with a script credited to adam cooper & bill collage and jeffrey caine and steven zaillian) feels overstuffed and over-glossed.

Obviously a religious offering, but in order to make it more appealing to the masses, they toned down the religious parts and made it more of a historical disaster flick with a fantasy element. Numbing and soulless spectacle of 3-d, computer-generated imagery run amok, ridley scott’s “exodus: gods and kings” presents an enduring tale by pummeling us over the head with story of moses rising up against the pharaoh ramses and leading hundreds of thousands of hebrew slaves out of egypt to freedom is one with which we’re all extremely familiar.
Unfortunately, i was left feeling extremely gh this is a classic, biblical story that most movie-goers already familiar with, the film-makers have decided to pad t tale with over-the-top action scenes, as well as ters that feel more like cardboard cut-outs as opposed to beings.

I know, now we just wait for him to get back to egypt and set things , meet aaron and negotiate with pharaoh regarding the release people. In the end, the film’s strongest suit is its evocation of plagues, with frogs, flies and locusts descending in awe-inspiring fashion.
Indeed moses and his rebel scum do manage to attack the egyptians by taking some of their ships down on the nile, but not before a kickass training montage on the art of war first!

Beside it is a child, crop-haired and spindly, with a smile that’s impossible to read. Flawed though ambitious adaptation of the story of moses (christian bale) and ramses (joel edgerton), and how they begun as basically brothers, but how god's will propels one to fight for the freedom of his people, and the other for the survival of his kingdom.
Sporadically stirring, and suitably epic in its ambitions, exodus: gods and kings can't quite live up to its classic source sporadically stirring, and suitably epic in its ambitions, exodus: gods and kings can't quite live up to its classic source sporadically stirring, and suitably epic in its ambitions, exodus: gods and kings can't quite live up to its classic source : gods and kings acclaimed director ridley scott (gladiator, prometheus) comes the epic adventure "exodus: gods and kings," the story of one man's daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Never ever seen so detailed visuals of ancient buildings, slums , and huge ocean waves and what not.

Why on earth they went that long way around and not along the coast i dunno, something to do with the philistines i believe, not friendly folk or whatever, hey lets not go there right. That's what i felt, that he didn't want to be there and made me watch the whole film with disdain.
This is bold and uncompromising stuff from scott; a biblical epic to shake your faith in the order of things, not reaffirm it. Moses leads the hebrews through a mountain pass because essentially he's lost and hasn't got a bloody clue where to go (no pillars of smoke or fire here folks).
There’s also some arthurian rhetoric involving a special sword; a dash of hunger games, with the massed rebels and flaming times, it can feel like the bible is the least key text. There’s an integrity at work here which finds full force in the final reel, as moses tries to save ramses from himself, then turns terribly potent in end-title dedication to scott’s own brother, exodus trades in other myths too: most obviously a superhero origins story - quasi-thor, vaguely star wars, in which a man must face up to murky origins in order to save the world.
Great quotes about love and pictures - the story of love and romance: from adam and eve and chemsex. It’s impossible not to feel some awe at the spectacle, but more shocks would have helped see you through the two-and-a-half hour running time.
